The price is reasonable.

Is there a reason yoy want the shield soldered? I'm sue they have existed but In well over 50 years, these are the first N connectors I've seen where the shield is soldered. All the others clamped, or crimped.

I use strictly crimp for N type.
For UHF connectors, I use crimp, clamp, and solder depending on the cable and use.

To prevent excess solder on the center connectors, heat the pin pointed up. touch solder to the open end of the pin (bottom) and as soon as it starts to melt, move to apply solder to the wire and let the pin suck it up.
